    KIA Cars in India


    KIA Motors cars grabbed eyeballs among the international audience in August 2014, when Pope Francis of the Catholic Church was seen moving in one of their compact sedans the KIA Soul. Not many knew back then that KIA Motors was the second largest automobile manufacturer in South Korea close behind the ever-popular Hyundai Motor Company, which also owns a minority stake in the auto giant.


    KIA Motors Cars


    KIA has been focussing on the European & US market since 2005 & 2006 and after establishing itself as a brand to reckon with, it has now shifted its focus to one of the most lucrative car markets i.e. India. KIA Motors India is building a massive manufacturing unit in Andhra Pradesh’s Anantapur district where it is expected to roll out 300,000 Kia car models in a year starting from 2019. It is expected to invest close to a whopping $1.1 billion in order to develop and expand its operations, which showcases the seriousness with which it is approaching this booming automobile market. No wonder the Internet is loaded with Kia car news.


    The prospects that lie ahead for KIA Motors


    KIA Motors India has set a not-so-easy objective of capturing 6-7% of the market share by the end of 2021 while overtaking Volkswagen, Nissan, Ford and Renault in the process, which is not going to be easy. KIA will need to sell more than 300,000 Kia car models to surpass the previously-mentioned players and then to pose a credible challenge to Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai, which are at a commanding position, and enjoy favourable goodwill among its Indian customers at the moment.

    On the global front, the brand has made a determined announcement of introducing 25 Kia cars by the year 2025, and as envisioned by the Indian government to phase out petrol and diesel cars around that same timeline. KIA’s electric cars should be able to make inroads into this nascent yet promising Indian EV market.

    KIA Motors cars in India have a long road ahead but with the brand’s experience of operating in an overseas market, aggressive Kia car prices and an impressive portfolio of cars, the brand should be able to sail through to become one of the key players in this cramped yet lucrative Indian automobile market.
